Desert Storm American Steam Beer

Classification: steam beer, California common, Anchor, all-grain

Source: Stephen Russell ( Issue #756, 11/6/91

Judges said it was perhaps a tad thin compared to Anchor but otherwise OK and it took 2nd out of 30 amber beers at the Hudson Valley competition last March. With MeV kaput, I recommend using a sturdy lager yeast or even an ale yeast for this one.



Mash grains for 25 minutes at 125 degrees and 90 minutes at 150 degrees. Mash-out for 10 minutes at 168 degrees. Sparge. Bring to boil and add Northern Brewer hops. Boil 60 minutes. At last minute toss in Hallertauer. Cool. Pitch yeast.
